She-Ra turned to He-Man, then gripped Swift-Winds reigns. He-Man offered her a smile, and the pair looked out upon the crowd that had settled at Castle Brightmoon. The Kingdom was freed from Hordaks grip, and now She-Ra was the leader of the Great Rebellion. He-Man - and Adam, within - knew what this meant.
Princess Adora, She-Ra, was going to have to remain here on Etheria only days after being rediscovered.
The crowd roared, giving She-Ra a light grin. "Listen to them cheer. Its so good to hear them happy."
He-Man nodded. "What about you? Are you happy?" he questioned.
"Yes," She-Ra answered at first, before closing her eyes in thought, "and no."
"You . . . you wont be returning to Eternia me," He-Man assumed.
"Youre right," she answered swiftly. "Hordak was correct. One battle does not win a war. And it is a war that Etheria is fighting. Im needed here. At least for now."
He-Man took a breath, understanding what she was saying. Without another word, the pair hugged tightly as brother and sister. "Tell mother and father I love them."
"I will," He-Man replied. "Ready to go home, Battlecat?"
"Sure, He-Man!" growled Battle Cat.
He-Man looked at her dearestly. "Say goodbye to all my friends here, will you? And should you ever need my help . . ."
She smiled at him...
